Use Yout Time Wisely – Prior to attending Lincoln College I'd already submitted my FAFSA paperwork. I was only notified of one error during the processing. Once the error was corrected and resubmitted, the process went very well. I received and letter from the school explaining in detail the amount of funding I was awarded from both. I was very impressed with this process. However, I do encourage anyone whose attending for the first time to be sure all of the financial information is processed prior to. Due to the fact that I really didn't understand the total process, I failed to fill out the loan paperwork needed to cover the amount that was outstanding for the tuition. However, when I submitted the proper forms needed while at the school ,the financial aid office did a great job of assisting me. My mom and I only had to sit for a short period of time to get with the financial aid officer at the school. After all the information was sent to the student loan department, we waited for the outcome. It was unbelievable and such a relief the amount of time it took for the overall process. We were approved for the loan! We then took the results of the loan request to the admittance office and was soon on our way! In my honest opinion, the school's tuition is worth what I've paid so far. Recognizing the fact that I was not totally prepared and the amount of time I spent getting the finances needed to attend, it's well worth it.

My overall experience at Lincoln College has been great! I like the size of the school and the town itself, being there in Lincoln I have no distractions. The faculty and tutors are also very helpful, and I feel comfortable there.

Well with my major being nursing I have very advancing classes such as biology, but this only pushes me to work harder! I know there are many field out there for a job for me I just have to stay focused. The work load is also huge, but if I do not procrastinate there is really no issue.
